Many states have proposed DPC legislation in the current session. Here are the ones that we are following. If we have left any off the list please let us know by placing a comment below! By the end of this legislative session we could have 20 states with DPC laws on the books!
Wyoming has proposed SF0049. The bill is an excellent piece of legislation that should be supported broadly. It can be viewed here and tracked here.
Virginia has proposed SB 685 which can be tracked here and viewed here. Another good example of DPC legislation, though this one has certainly required some defending.
Florida has proposed companion HB 37 and SB 0132. The house bill can be tracked here and viewed here. The senate bill can be tracked here and viewed here. These have our support as well.
Tennessee has proposed excellent legislation in the form of companion HB 2323 and SB 2443 modeled after Oklahoma's. You can track it here.
Alaska has proposed helpful legislation with HB 159 which can be viewed here and tracked here.
Nebraska has LB 817 that has been proposed by Senator Riepe (who was kind enough to attend the DPC Summit last year). It can be tracked here and viewed here.
Georgia has SB 265 to protect DPC practices. (The same language has also been offered as part of a larger bill - SB 291). These links both display and track the legislation.
